Mr Munro has been scanning more of our print photos into digital format. Today I’m going to share some photos from our trip to Kenya.
It’s quite strange finding a mountain in the tropics, but Mt Kenya is definitely a mountain and a challenge to climb. We almost made the top, but the weather closed in during our final push to the summit. It’s difficult to walk when it’s raining and the mist closes in and obscures vision.
This is me at base camp. I can’t believe how skinny I am here!
While climbing Mt. Kenya you have to navigate a vertical bog. It’s quite hard work jumping from tuft to tuft. The vegetation is unusual too, and it made me think of alien planets. I’m the second person back with the red on my coat.
I don’t like this photo of me, but Mr Munro said I should add it to show how high the second camp was, nearer the top of the mountain.
We had an awesome time during our Mt Kenya visit. It was tiring and definitely hard work climbing the vertical bog but very rewarding once we made camp. It’s a pity we didn’t make the top, but it was still fun. A great experience to tick off the bucket list.
Do you think you’d like the challenge? Do you like walking or trekking?
